The first step for us to identify a good lessee is to advertise the listing to prospective renters moving to Northern Virginia. But the second step is to find the the best-possible tenant.
Nesbitt Realty examines the prospective renter’s past behavior. With that in mind, our family-run real estate business assumes the possible lessee’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a solid, solid renter as well as meeting your financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several fundamentals including:
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt knows it's important to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental in 22314 in Alexandria. Investors should be aware that the majority of other rental property managers do not look at court records.
- Credit History – The applicant's credit history informs us about the applicant’s current and past performance with regards to debts and other financial obligations. The applicant’s credit report also tells us their monthly debt and shows their previous addresses (which we compare to addresses listed on the application). An applicant must have acceptable credit to qualify.
- Application – After the possible lessee take a closer look ats a rental, the agent takes an application. The application is accompanied by supporting documentation so that Nesbitt Realty and Management can verify and look at all information included on the application. The prospective renter pays for the cost of the background check at the time of application.
If accepted, the applicant’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the lessee with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the rental penthouse and community.
